OK so with all of the hullabaloo about redrawing the boundry lines near Chitina, it seems that dipnetting the copper river is getting harder and harder every year. I called the Chitina dipnett hotline to try to straighten out my confusion but now i am completey lost. The recording said the tentative opening for the 2008 Copper River personal use dipnet fishing season is June 4-8, and will open for x amount of hours. The recording makes it sound like the season will only open for a few days. Is this right? Is it like this every year? I'm sure i'm way overboard on this issue but i'm just looking for a straight answer. Also the native land use permits?? Where can you get them? Do you absolutely need them to get back to the good areas between Obrien and Haley creeks? HELP???
